I received these socks in a Limited Edition Birchbox and I love them! I got a purple pair with white horizontal lines. I love the look and the feel of these socks. They fit great in my boots or in my socks. They also keep my feet very warm in the winter.
I have not had a problem with them shrinking, but I treat them like my other winter socks - I wash them, then I hang them to dry. I do not put them in the dryer. That has kept these socks in good condition.
